Lost My tackle Box on Minnetonka

9 posts in this topic

Hey Guys, I was out on Minnetonka on Saturday and I had one of my smaller clear plastic tackle holders fall out of my shack when I was moving to a new spot. If someone on here happened to stumble upon it around the Wayzata Bay area and is willing to give it back, I'd really appreciate it. It had all my panfish jigs in it and a bunch of hooks and miscellaneous stuff. I'd be willing to pick up a case of beer for the person that returns it! Thanks.

Sorry to hear of this Goggle, lets hope an F.M.'er finds it.

Good luck!

I lost a box full of trout flies a couple years ago, must have fallen out of a vest pocket. There was at least 100 flies in the box. I backtracked hoping to find it, but no luck. Now I write my name & phone number on my boxes with a Sharpie marker. I think most anglers are honest and if they found a box would return it if they knew who to call.

GoggleEye,

after looking at the tracks on the way back to the access, it almost looks like the guy with the permanent shack must have stopped and picked it up.

Still sux either way you look at it.

Put your name and number on everything! I think the vast majority of anglers are of stock that would call you up!

Ya, I will be putting my name and number on things from now on. This sucks, but nobody ever said fishing was cheap!! I just lose more than the average guy! Oh well, start from scratch and try to build my jig collection back up to what it was......

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
